    Most Clutch ISU Player

    Of all of the great players to play here, which one would you feel most comfortable with having the ball late in a close game. Personally I think it is hard to argue against Justice Thigpen. He hit a buzzer beater three to win at Colorado, Tipped in a bucket with about 1 second left to beat Minnesota, and single handedly brought ISU back against #2 Oklahoma State both in regulation and in OT.
    However, I have to give a close second to either Fred Hoiberg or Curtis Stinson.
    What are your thoughts?

    Fizer hit a few game winners. I remember one against Kansas he banked in from the baseline... sweeeet...


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    I never thought Hoiberg was that clutch later in his college career, just me. Dedric Willoughby brought it in the big games.

    Jake Sullivan has to at least be an honorary mention here for his 3 point ability and free throw percentage.

    Stinson? 3 pt'er vs. Virginia in Ames, jump shot/floater vs. KU in Lawrence...


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: Most Clutch ISU Player

    Too many great players... I'd go with Hoiberg, Hornacek, Fizer, Grayer, Stevens, Just-ice, or Willoughby. Can't go wrong with any of them.

    Re: Most Clutch ISU Player

    I agree with Dedric as well. He had huge games against Kansas and UCLA his senior year. Even though we lost those games Willoughby definately was not to blame.

    Re: Most Clutch ISU Player

    I can't speak for anybody before the 90's but I thought Stinson was at his best late in games and in big games.

    Exactly, Tinsley was just money for us when we needed him - getting the ball to the right people at the right time. Gotta give love to the floor general.
